‘One Man & His Dog’ – Horse Guards Road, SW1

The regular appearance of a labrador and its owner. The man (shaven head, combat trousers and boots) assumes the role of ‘ringmaster’ in front of a queue of curious tourists, putting the dog through a series of exercises. Remaining almost silent, but for quiet instructions to the animal, this somewhat strange ritual giving off the impression of a military/security handler and his charge. A persona created through the ‘family pet’?
